    If the Sorc is casting shields and your damage sucks, it is very normal. This sounds like a nerf Sorc thread. I am extremely doubtful from your description and wording that any exploits were used.

    Please upload the video. I want to see it.

    Have to wait on xbox dvr. :(. Me and my friends were tanky and not big DD but he was just standing there with infinite shield not casting then walked forward and back and then the zerg came and he hid in tower. So exploit or the best animation cancelling i have ever seen

    This sounds like something I would do. Lol

    AGREE!

    This is almost as bad as the sword exploit, where you can use a sword to damage your opponent until they are dead! Or the axe exploit, where it causes your opponent to bleed for no particular reason other than getting sliced open by a big sharp axe. Or worse yet, the fall damage exploit, when the player you are fighting (on the edge of a cliff) uses Fear and you run off the edge like a lemming.

    2 people? Hell yeah, anyone with good Magicka sustain and Damage Shield strength can do that. Especially in a CP Campaign.

    I think you missed the part in the post where he said they were afk and still maintaining a shield.

    Only thing i can think of is in IC some areas give you a blue shield that makes you immune to attacks. Which is why I wanted more info.

    @Osteos The video will be funny to watch if that's the case....
    I once hung out beside an enemy player for quite some time in one of those areas where we were both shielded... We were both reluctant to move away to where we could be attacked, so it became an impromptu dance-off. Eventually we both just went our separate ways and didn't attack each other.

    @UrQuan A video of that would have been hilarious to watch.....First one to leave may die!

    Were you guys all like.... giphy.com/gifs/IwuO6n7jrnvYA
    That's pretty much exactly what happened... It's too bad I didn't have Shadowplay running, or I would totally have posted a video of it somewhere.

    @UrQuan I can picture you both standing there in all blue aura's just dancing like there's no tomorrow! :D

    @UrQuan Did you guys time it so you were in sync?

    When the lag used to be game stopping in cyrodiil. I was at Chalman trying to fight an EP Argonian in the NW tower, it was completely pointless the lag was so bad we couldn't do anything so we decided to have a dance off while our factions impulsed eachother to death inside the keep.

They were afk and unkillable then they came back and just walked around while their sheilds never dissapeared they werent casting and this was in over world this isnt a nerf sorc thread.

    Update just saw them get cced and break free instead of just taking it seems to have broke what ever sheild glitch he had his sheild come off finally.

    Update : if i do upload video will i get banned for name and shame?

    maybe a hacker, or someone with 30K magicka?

    Since you mentioned this was on Xbox...I'm going to guess you guys ran into shieldstacker :lol:. His health is low, but his shields are massive, probably in the top five for sorcs I've run into...and he probably was just trolling you guys and laughing.

    It's also suspicious on your end that you say you and what sounds like a friend or two hit him, but then you change to saying it was a whole zerg...

    If you really think it was an exploit you should be quiet and take this to Zos.

    I'm normally very suspicious when someone cries foul, but I don't understand what I'm seeing here.

    The shield is refreshed without the player seeming to cast anything. Indeed, the staff doesn't come off the character's back until late in the video so I'm having a very difficult time believing that this was animation cancelling at all.

    The damage the target is taking is by no means insurmountable with a sorc shield and/or annulment but these would need to be refreshed.

    My guess is if it's legit then it's because there's a bug where you just weren't seeing the shields being recast or something like that. I haven't seen that myself, but it's odd. Maybe something like seeing someone stuck in shield charge when they themselves don't see it on their client (happened tonight, actually). I'd definitely send it to ZOS and then just forget about it if it's an isolated incident.

    By the way, ZOS is going to stomp on this thread if the names stay in the video - just a heads up.

    (Edited for clarity.)

    I've seen this before, not just shields. There is a way (never been taught myself) you can suppress animations. I think you can do it with emotes as well.

    All the other people see, is you standing there or emoting while you, on the other hand, are casting skills normally.

    First time I saw this was back just after IC launched. I've had people do it in front of me, but none of them were nice enough to explain it.

    Had a red kill me with wrecking blow dawnbreaker while sitting on a chair lol.

    I think there is a video on here somewhere with someone dying in a dueling place by the Kowtow emote.

    I fought a Sorc the other day that I reported on Xb1. I'm running 5 pieces Death's Wind, 3 Torug's in Blackwater blade with 53k health and 20k stamina, and somehow he casted a shield, crystal frag, endless fury, greater storm atronach, force pulse all whilst weaving heavy inferno attacks and I died in less than 4 seconds whilst buffed with Unstoppable, Rally and Igneous shield.

    The part that makes it an exploit is that the only animation I saw him actually do is force pulse!!

    @Destyran Nice Malubeth Cancerplar -_-

    I have a few ideas for what happened.

    1) That Sorc had their weapons out, and was shield-spamming for the sole purpose of messing with you. I do the same thing to tanky Malubeth Templars sometimes for fun. The rare bug of characters standing still (nearly animation-less) just like that happened but for a long time.

    2) The player was abusing the Emote bugs, which can cancel animations, and found a strange way to manipulate it for what we see here.

    I believe it's the animation glitch. This was prolonged, but nothing screamed exploit. Just really buggy gameplay :/

    DUUUUDE! WTF? PS4-NA in Scourge, whilst trying to get Assault Rank 7, a blue around I believe Sejanus Outpost hit me with: An Ice Comet, Endless Fury, Crushing Shock, and Crystal Frag. All while dancing in front of our outpost.

    After getting constant backlash of posting videos of oddities happening in Cyrodiil, I won't show the video. Plus, I don't want to get banned for naming and shaming here on the forums. But yes, I have video proof of it. I had to watch that crap 3-4x to make sure I wasn't lagging or seeing what I thought I saw.
